Rebecca Onie, JD
Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer
Bio:In 1996, Rebecca Onie co-founded Health Leads to address the fundamental drivers of patients’ health. With our hospital, community health center, and integrated delivery system partners, Health Leads has enabled physicians and other healthcare providers across the country to “prescribe” food, electricity, and other basic resources their patients need to be healthy – and armed a variety of workforces to “fill” those social needs prescriptions by working side-by-side with patients to access the existing landscape of community resources. Health Leads arms healthcare institutions with the tools, technology, analytics, best practices, and peer community necessary to address their own patients’ resource needs and to champion a healthcare system that address all patients’ basic resource needs as a standard part of quality care. Last year, Health Leads directly served over 14,000 patients and their families, touching nearly 50,000 total lives. In 2009, Rebecca was honored to receive a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship. She has also been recognized by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s 2012 Young Leader Award; Network for Excellence in Health Innovation’s 2014 “Innovators in Health” Award; Forbes Magazine’s Impact 30, recognizing the world’s top 30 social entrepreneurs; and the Schwab Foundation’s 2013 Social Entrepreneur of the Year. Rebecca is one of the Aspen Institute’s inaugural Health Innovator Fellows; a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader; member of the Mayo Clinic Center for Innovation External Advisory Council; and a One Acre Fund board member.
